Two years after the last match, Ecuador and Colombia will meet again, this time in a friendly to be played at the Red Bull Arena in New York. Ecuadorians and Colombians come to this game with wins with different expressions: while Ecuador comfortably beat Trinidad and Tobago (3-0), Colombia beat Peru with a goal after 90.
After the 6-1 loss to Argentina, Ecuador returned to triumphs against Trinidad and Tobago (3-0). A goal from Alan Franco and a double from Antonio Valencia, two of Ecuador's best players, allowed Jorge Célico's team to forget the heavyweight defeat against the Argentines a bit and to breathe a little better before facing the Colombians.
The Colombian team has been better in the last three meetings against Ecuadorians, who have won just one of the last seven. It is necessary to go back to 2008 to find the last draw between these two teams (0-0). On the Colombian side, Carlos Queirós doesn't have names like Radamel Falcao James Rodriguez (injured) or Juan Quintero, but stars like Cuadrado, David Ospina or Yerry Mina give to the Portuguese coach more than enough credentials to make the difference in the FIFA rankings (Colombia occupies the ninth position and Ecuador occupies 65) to be confirmed in the field.
With more or less difficulty, Colombia is expected to confirm favoritism and make the best quality of its performers evident in the field. By this, we believe that the recent trend will continue and that victory will be with the Colombians.
